Figures and Fashion

A five week course in Drawing and Watercolor
Mondays, 7-8:30PM EDT, May 10-June 7
Includes private Facebook group for critique and sharing. $125

Paper dolls for adults! This class is perfect for students wanting to practice the standing figure and explore dynamic ways to dress ‘em up! Focusing on the female form, students will learn to draw a croquis (model)-all body types included! Our figures will be short and tall, skinny and curvy, young and old! Characters all!

Garments are an amazing opportunity to use drawing and watercolor to render color, pattern, tex- ture, and drapery. In particular, we’ll explore rendering various fabrics such as satin, velvet, and of course those wonderful sheers. In addition to ink and watercolor, the class will invite students to explore some mixed media options including collage.

A Day at the Beach

A five week course in drawing and watercolor
Tuesdays, 7-8:30PM EDT, May 11-June 8
Includes private Facebook group for critique and sharing. $125

Need to get away? Here’s your chance.

This class focuses on some very lively subject matter…the Beach! We’ll begin with simple seascape and quickly move on to lifeguard stands, umbrellas, beach towels, and cabanas. By week five, you’ll be sketching bathers lounging in the hot sun.

And while enjoying the scenery, students will also be learning and practicing important skills in drawing and painting including composition, use of line, value, and perspective. In addition to sketching, each week will introduce another watercolor technique designed to make your brush dance.

So much more than a class, A Day at the Beach will be an adventure!

Wabi Sabi Watercolor

Back by Popular Demand! All new projects! 

Wabi Sabi is defined as the celebration of imperfection. In this case, we embrace the practice of watercolor by letting go a little and seeing what the medium has to teach us. In addition to tried and true methods, we’ll explore the unconventional. Watercolor makes a lively base for other media such as ink, marker, colored pencil, etc. Layering can be liberating!  For all levels…especially beginners!

Topics include:
-why does my paper hate me?
-how do I get those rich colors?
-embracing brush strokes
-the unexpected joy of wet on wet
-scraping with a credit card and other unorthodox methods 

In addition to the live zoom class, there will be a private Facebook group for posting and invaluable critique.
